Stopped in about six weeks ago. It was about 2pm so not very busy. After standing at the counter for five minutes a staff member finally acknowledged us and said it would be a few minutes. Twenty minutes later I asked how much longer and was told "I have no idea, we have a problem in the kitchen.". Decided to... More

Stopped by here for a late lunch, and although being seated and getting service was a bit confusing at first, all who I encountered were friendly and apologetic for it. The catfish dinner was cooked correctly and very flavorful. My son had the bacon cheeseburger and it was large and tasty. The view, the weather, and the food made for... More

Waited 45 minutes for a table, Ok, festival day understandable. Then the large party who came and checked in after us, sat after us, but got menus, drinks and appetizers before we even had drinks. Even asked host about it and nothing was done. This is not good business.

I've been coming here for many years since just after it opened. The food is always good, the service friendly, and the prices reasonable. If you expect a downtown Dallas dive you'll be disappointed but if you remember you're in Medicine Park you'll love it. When was the last time you visited a cafe where trees grew in the floor...

My first and only visit was a disappointment. The staff was not welcoming or friendly. Service was initiated by me. The girl who I did get to hand me a beer over the counter seemed very put out (gave me exasperated looks and sighs) to have to wait on me. Live music was ok as the guy singing and playing... More

Indifferent service. Everything greasy and fried. Dirty. Nice view but yuck. Nasty place. I would miss a meal rather than eat here again.

We came here one time during the fall when it was unusually warm outside with our dog, which they allowed on the deck. Attempting to get a table was a bit of a disaster. Upon going to the front desk, which the sign tells you to do, the lady didn't seem to understand why I was there requesting a table.... More

Stppoed in on a day of a local festival so everybody must have been tired, but service and food was only mediocre.
